Dear Sir: Last month I scalded my hand with hot coffee, causing the cuticle to peel off. I promptly made a liberal application to the wound of your "tobacco oint ment," carefully wrapping my hand in a handkerchief to exclude the air. The effect was magical. In less than fifteen minutes the pain completely subsided, and my hand became well in a week. Nothing surpasses your great remedy for curing scalds and burns, and my neighbors teJl me that it is equally efficacious in rheu matism and other ills. I know many public men who swear by the "tob acco remedy" as the devout Mussul man does "by the sword of the prophet." Your great discovery will cause generations yet unborn' to thank you. You have given the oft-den ounced "tobacco" an enviable fame makings it the chief stone of the corner, so to speak. -Your achieve ments; in arms and in statesman ship, brilliant as they are, dwindle into insignificance when compared with the discovery , of jrour incom, parable "tobtcco remedy." -. Very respectfully, ' Rollin H. Kirk, - - Counsellor-at-law.T Graham Affairs.

"The tobacco is all in the barns and pro ducers well pleased with "the growth and cure. Th is is Ethe first vear in the tobacco business in this countv. I believe the growth ot tobacco here will prove mom successful thanin the counties where frost has pie vail ed this tail, the altitude liere being sooner than in any county west of the Ridge, which makes our spYing earlier and fall season later."

Messrs Editors: The generahtlis- play of field,- orchard and vineyard products at the Western N. C. Agri cultural Fair, held at Ash eviile, was very creditable to our mountain sec tion. It could not be expected that the society which is scarcely yet or ganized should manage a display of this character with the skill com mon to those long accustomed to make such displays. The uniform excellence, however, of the material shown was quite suggestive -of the capacity of o'ir transmontane plateau lo excel in several products, notably, corn, Irish pot.it'v?? cab oage, wheat, oats, rye, onio. beets, ?addishes;-'lJarr6i8 kins, squashes, fcc, &c The dis play of apples, late peaches, pears and grapes, contained a significant lesson in regard to some industries which, I have nd doubt, will be of great luture value to this mountain section- Whenever our people pan be brought to a proper appreciation of orchard culture and fertilization our orchard fruit will be without a rivaL' And as to grapes, I have long entertained the belief that our mountain vallies and gorges con tain soils and localities peculiarly adapted to grape culture, and wine making. There are many abrupt mountain slopes, which by skilful excavation could be made into wine cellars which would insure a uni form - temperature rarely, if ever, foyui in ordinary localities in a leveler country, I was especially impressed with a new grape on ex hibition - at the Fair Grounds, the Niagara. The size of this grape is above the medium. The clusters are large and somewhat compact, and a more delicious fruit it has not been my fortune to meet with. In the few berries which I had the plea a- ure of testing, 1 did not perceive that acrid matter about the heart and seeds which I have sometimes met with in some other varieties. This grape brings fifteen cents per pound in New York, and such a grape promises the best results in our sec tion for either the market or the wine cellar, and I am glad to know that Mr. S. C. Satterwaite, Aiken, S. Cv is the Southern agent for the sale of this grape in our sectifm, and isirepared to-ak -4ibetl4r ms witn parties desiring to plant vine yards. It is to be hoped, Mr. Editor, that our transmontane, people will wake up to new methods, to more active industry and to more pains- king enterprise, and utilize the woZVderful advantages with . which natufhas blessed thim in climate and tn capabilities of soil. Then will our jiekl and garden products reach that Superiority which is their due, and ouV orchards and vine yards stand witiout a rival. YourtVv &c, . C. D. Smith.
